boyfriend pushing me away because of depression
what can i do? what do i do? what can i do to get him back.
i dont want him to suffer, because he deserves so much love and i know i can give that to him. please help me get him back.
Hi P.U. welcome
Firstly, you as a person (like many) is very limited as to what you can do to help him. We can believe that we have an abundance of love and that love will....fix everything for that person. Not necessarily.
Also, he had to help himself. Many with mental illness don't do so for their own reasons. Such reasons are variable.
Finally, you must remember that "charity begins at home"... In that you need to primarily look after yourself. If he does not portray feelings that he wants to be with you then you are hoping....and hoping isn't enough foundation for a sound relationship.
Moving on won't be easy. You'll need to focus on having move fun time with your friends and your sports and hobbies.
I know all this won't be easy for you to read. But I can assure you that a willing bf is a good boyfriend and he will enter your life one day. Unless this current guy makes more effort. One way relationships don't work.
